WhatsApp Virus?

Just had a 'message' pop up on one of my whatsapp groups with an attached zip file called "bugreport".

Anyone seen owt like this before?

I assume that not clicking on it is the way to go, but can it do anything just sitting in the group chat?
 
It's This: Bugreport Whatsapp virus.

New York Times said:
Bugreport.exe is a Trojan horse and keylogger that downloads your passwords and encrypts sensitive personal video files and demands a payment to decrypt them.

You may have arrived at this page either because you have visited well known animal porn sites, or you are concerned that your computer has been affected by this risk.

Before proceeding further we recommend that you run a full system scan. If that does not resolve the problem you can try one of the options available below. The easiest way of avoiding bugreport is no not visit gay animal porn sites

One of your friends' phones has been infected. The virus then sends itself to everyone in their contacts. If opened, the virus then infects your phone, and sends itself to everyone in your contacts. Etc.

If you opened it then you need to txt everyone and tell them not to open the fucker. Probably too late now like.
 
Gay animal porn? Sounds specific but also likely with the OP

Thought as much, not opened it anyway.
